This error message normally appears due to the following reasons:
1.  You are far from your router/access point.
2. Your computer could not get an IP address from the router/access point.
3. The password or security key or pass phrase you have on the computer is incorrect.
To correct this, I highly recommend for you to do the following:
1. Check the wireless settings of your router/access point.
2. This can be done through logging into the Netgear's User Interface by:
        (a) Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.
        (b) On the address bar type or
        (c) A user name and password will be asked, for user name type "admin". For password type the word "password".
3. Click on the wireless settings under set up. There you will see the wireless settings of your router.
Delete your preferred networks and then try to connect again using the right security code.

The error normally appear when you are about to connect to the internet after reformatting the computer. Reformat will delete previous files and settings of your computer  and it takes a few minutes to re-establish the connection. To fix the problem please follow these simple instructions.

1.   Go to Control panel.

2.   Click Network and internet connections.

3.    Find Network connections and click.

4.    On the LAN/High speed internet right click your Local Area Connection and select repair.



After clicking the repair, Windows will automatically re-establish your internet connection and it will take a few minutes to complete.

Note: Repair will not guarantee a 100% internet connection recovery in one setting. Sometimes it needs more than 3 – 5 retries to re-establish back the connection.

There are two possible reasons if you are having this issue. It could be that your wireless network password is incorrect, or the wireless zero configuration is disabled. If your wireless web key or password is correct, you have to click start, run, and enter services.msc and click OK.

Find and click Wireless Zero Configuration, then click 'Start the service'. Click start again, control panel, network connections, then right click on Wireless Network Connection and hit properties.

Click the Wireless Networks tab and put a check on the box for 'Use windows to configure my wireless' then click OK.

That should resolve your problem.
